I chose Tulane because... Tulane had the best academics and baseball situation for me.

The best part about playing baseball at Tulane is... winning, everybody loves winning.

My goals for this season are... one word, OMAHA!

Do you have any pregame rituals/superstitions? I always have to have my bat in a certain spot in the dugout, and I wear the same undershirt every game.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of baseball? Getting to hang with the guys, we always have a good time.

What is your favorite food? Favorite Game Day Meal? I love a good Steak, medium rare. Crawfish pasta is the best before a game, you can't be beat.

If you could play for any MLB team, who would it be? The Atlanta Braves, I am from Atlanta and I was born and raised a Braves fan.

Who was your idol growing up? My dad, he has always been my idol. My baseball idol is Derek Jeter because he's the captain.

What was your greatest memory from last season? Either beating LSU at home when Brennan hit his home run and meeting him at home or taking 2 of 3 at East Carolina.

If you were not playing baseball, what would you be doing? I would probably be trying to find a job to support my activities.

What music do you like to listen to before a game? Country at first to relax me, then some rap right before I go out for pre-game.

What is your hidden talent? I know every song in the entire world, and will sing them.

What is your favorite type of animal? Dogs, they just like to hang out and play all day, which is what I want to do.

Why did the chicken cross the road? Cause there was probably a beautiful woman on the other side.

What is your favorite thing about New Orleans? There is always something to do at any hour, and the food is great.

If you were going to be stranded on an island and could have 3 things with you, what 3 items would you take with you? My IPod, a hammock and sunglasses.

What's something no one knows about you? I was an 8th grade all-star in football as a kicker/punter/wide receiver.

Vanilla or Chocolate? Chocolate.

What is the best road stadium/atmosphere that you have been in? East Carolina. The fans are really tough on you but at the end of the weekend they want to talk and that was really cool.

One word that describes you as a person.... Assertive.
